Car window blind manufacturer Car Shades, has moved in to a much larger production and distribution facility.
The new 24,000 sq. ft facility is on the site of former coalmines in Bilsthope, Northampton. The premises will be shared with Vanstyle, a company in the same group.
First formed in 2005, Car Shades embarked on an expansion programme in May 2015 when Steve Giles, former Operations Manager and now MD, took control of the firm. Having expanded both in terms of outright size and the number of specific fitment options offered, it was decided that a new site was needed.
Commenting on the move, Car Shades MD, and Mansfield local, Steve Giles was clearly delighted at the opportunities ahead. “We’re already proud to be working with some of the world’s greatest automotive manufacturers, and I feel that with the ability to offer increased production and even higher quality control, we’ll continue to buck the current economic trends” he said.
